Last year, North Side Summerfest expanded from a small event held in Northcenter’s Town Square to a full-blown two-day affair held along Lincoln Avenue, south of Irving Park. This year, organizers are aiming to up the ante again by adding a third day to the fest, planned for Aug. 17 -19.

We’ve said it before: Everybody loves a street fest, as long as it’s on someone else’s street. Residents will have an opportunity to voice their concerns or support at a community meeting scheduled for June 5, 7 p.m., at the Northcenter Chamber’s offices, 4054 N. Lincoln Ave.
